Making America Antitrust Again

As if we needed another reason to #Hate #Amazon, they are the worst threat to free-market #Capitalism since Standard Oil. I avoid using them at all costs. Now they have US FAA approval for #drones!

Good post. I understand you to be correct in that population is the largest driver worldwide in GDP. These arguments also leave out the very important fact that there is also a "quality" of the GDP pie. To get the fastest growing GDP pie you use wasteful methods and offload costs as much as possible. Working at increasing the quality of the pie can also create happiness. This would be such things as closed cycle production and minimal offloading of costs, etc. Not a larger pie, but a higher quality pie I believe would cause the most "Happiness" (not sure what to call it).
So true that quality is a better way to live! However, as it's measured, I don't think cheaper inputs to a product or service change the GDP. To avoid double counting they won't measure components made to become part of a final product that a consumer buys; they just measure the price the final product sells at. But, if cheaper inputs lower the final products price they will sell more units and thus raise the total GDP. Is that what you meant?


The theorybiz article has many of the items that I was thinking of, especially the increasing #scarcity. For example, the topsoil in the #USA is being depleted and is a positive in the GDP figures. Increasing the farming quality so that we have no net loss of topsoil should lead to the best possible results in whatever measure is used.

I spend a lot of time thinking about alternatives to #Banking. I'm not really sure how I feel about this story yet. I first heard about it in the last few minutes of the FT #Podcast called #BankingWeekly.

While I am not a Biden fan, applying purity tests is what Putin had the far left do like the far right in order to elect Trump. If we truly want to take this country back from Putin, we have to stop doing his bidding. I will likely support someone other than Biden but I won't be applying purity tests to campaign by slamming other Dems.

Trump getting closer to the cliff?

In the 1980s all kinds of reputable news companies began to cover the Trump debacle. This podcast reminds me of that. He was always as bad as he is now. His only superpower is to throw chaff and flares in his wake to avoid the takedown.

Trump's war in Iran

Every #Iranian I've ever met, I've liked tremendously. If it weren't for our stinking backward thinking governments, we would all be good friends.

The latest episode of #OnTheMedia is really scratching my itch, especially the middle two quarters "How #Philanthropy Lets Rich People Off the Hook" and "Inside the #Chickenshit Club". #EatTheRich
